Fall is quickly approaching, which means an influx of rain and storms will be coming our way. It is important that you go around your home and make sure it can hold up well against impending storms. You want to protect your home fencing from any type of storm damage since it adds a layer of safety and security to your property. Luckily, there are a few simple tips you can follow so that your home fencing stays safe after a storm.
Inspect and Reinforce
When it comes to protecting your fencing from storm damage, you first need to inspect it to see if it can last through heavy rain and high-speed winds. You want to check for loose or damaged posts and replace them as needed. The last thing you want is a board flying off into your home during a storm. If a major storm is coming your way, it is wise to reinforce your fencing posts with concrete or cement.
One of the most effective ways to protect your home fencing from an impending storm is to trim your tree branches. You want to trim any branches that are hanging over or near your fence, especially if they are loose or dead. The last thing you want is for a branch to fall on your home fencing and seriously damaging it during a storm. If your neighbor’s tree branches are hanging over your fencing, ask if you can trim the branches for them.
Clear Your Yard
It is essential that you clear your yard of any patio furniture or other items before a storm hits. You want to avoid a chair or an umbrella flying into your fencing and damaging it. Make sure you are taking all of your yard and patio items into your home or shed before a storm hits.
